The Outspan Hotel is in Nyeri, Kenya. It was built up from an old farm by Eric Sherbrooke Walker in the 1920s.

Walker had purchased 28 hectares (69 acres) of Crown Land in Nyeri and in 1928, opened the Outspan Hotel, overlooking the gorge of a river in the Aberdare Range.[1][page needed]

The hunter Jim Corbett also lived there.[2][page needed]

The hotel now has 45 rooms on 8.1 ha (20 acres) of gardens.[3]
